Comfort

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/2)

Important: Choose the Adventure or Athlete hip belt – otherwise you will have literally no padding on your hips. I don’t recommend using the bag without a hipbelt either. The Adventure belt is more comfortable as it provides two layers of foam padding and a wider webbing and buckle – it’s also bigger and bulkier.

REI Co-op Trail 25 Pack - Men's

(1/4)

I like this pack. It is very comfortable. I don't use the waist strap. It rides very well even when I have one water bottle on one side

I also purchased a Capture Clip from Peak Designs which allows you to fix the camera to the shoulder strap in place while hiking – a great addition to this pack.

REI Co-op Trail 25 Pack - Men's

(1/4)

I don't use the waist strap. It rides very well even when I have one water bottle on one side. I usually carry a soft fleece jacket, windbreaker or rain jacket, first aid kit, and other items, in case I needed to spend a night in the wild. It makes a great day pack for hiking

Compartment

REI Co-op Trail 25 Pack - Men's

(1/1)

But I realized I needed more space when carrying more stuff sometimes. This includes times when I'm not solo and I'm carrying stuff for 2 people or for winter activity when I/we want to have some extra layers. I knew REI had a good selection of small pack sizes so I went back to them. The Flash 22 is too close in size so I went for this Trail 25

This is for all of you big guys out there. I'm a big guy 6ft with the profile of a grizzly. I like this pack. It is very comfortable

Strap

REI Co-op Trail 25 Pack - Men's

(1/2)

That worked, but it's also nice to not have a soaked bag. The straps are great, just exactly what you'd want for a bit more load. The mesh pocket on the inside of the lid works quite well, and so do the hydration features. Just keep in mind it's mostly a one-compartment pack
